    First off I want to say this "spot" was shown on youtube a year ago, it's no secret but it's no honey hole. Dropshot is the game, and it took over a week fishing at this spot everyday to finish this video. It's been fun, and at times a struggle. At the end of the vid I was shooting a outro/intro at mission bay and decided I might as well toss out the dropshot while I had it rigged...4 casts later and brought up a 15" hali! The technique kills it, can't wait til I get a legal. Tight lines.

    Dropshot same spot multiple sessions

    Nice video. The drone shots are cool.
    What kind and where do you get the scent in the jar?
    I’m hesitant to use the drop shot with it not being weedless, do you get hung up a lot?
    Thanks

    The jar is just a mason jar but the baits are Berkley Gulp Mullets, super simple and easy to use they come with juice scented in a bag from walmart. I really believe that the scent is what keeps fish holding on and biting again and again as you wait to set the hook. When I started fishing i was hesitant too, don't be. Yes you will bring weeds back, yes you will think a fish might be there and it will feel like a lot of weight but as long as you have 10-15 lbs leader line you can break those weeds before they break you off. What will break you before anything is a halibuts teeth! Weeds are inevitable, just get em off and recast. And cast, and cast again. When you feel a bite, it tugs back, let it. Then after your sure something is there set the hook, I set the hook on weeds all the time..."Swings are free" -Mike Gardner.

    You can always use a EWG hook and skin hook the bait. You still get clumps of grass sometimes but that's going to happen if you fish the right area.

    Hey, so sorry about your doggy. My fishing girl, Cali-Girl is turning 14 this December. I’m enjoying our time together. She doesn’t ride on the boat or kayak anymore. She’s deaf and her left back leg doesn’t work so well.

    I feel your pain. I’ll check out your ode to your pup.

    Tight lines

    Ahhh sorry for your loss man. Punch in the gut. I dread that day. Nice video dude. I fish that spot from the opposite bank often. Dropshot can be very effective there
